Yeah, last time, we told parents at 5 weeks pregnant, and then told friends at church the following week - actually just told a few people, and it spread like wildfire by that evening!
This time... I was not really wanting to tell everyone right away, since last cycle I had an early miscarriage (never even got a bfp, so it was super early). But my DH's grandmother had a heart attack Sunday, and so he had to go down to the hospital she was at and drive his mother over to see her. I was still at home (we just got back from a long bus trip, and my 20 month old was NOT needing to travel again yesterday), and I decided to take a test as it was the first day of my missed period, and AF hadn't showed up yet as of 9:30am.
I sent a picture of it to DH's cell phone, and when he called, I told him he could make the decision whether to tell his mom or not. Given the circumstances (her mother just having a heart attack), he decided it'd be best to go ahead and tell her to cheer her up some.
And we're going to time how long it takes for the news to travel from her church 3 hours away up to our church, since there are people related to each other in the two congregations. This should be fun. I give it 2 weeks, max.
Since DH's mother now knew (and his father would find out when she got home), I of course called MY parents last night. My dad was going to make us a nice oak changing table with drawers and everything for last baby... he has the wood purchased, but just hasn't gotten around to making it yet! He ended up buying us a cheaper changing table to use in the meantime. Well, at 20 months old, DS still doesn't have his nice, oak changing table.
So on the phone, I asked my dad "So... Do you think you could have that changing table made by Thanksgiving?"
So pretty much, everyone will probably know within a couple weeks, and I'm only about 4 weeks or maybe a day or two prior to 4 weeks along right now. I'm not sure exactly when I ovulated this cycle - didn't feel it, and can only tell you when my peak mucus day was, which ovulation can be 3 days before or after that day. So who knows!
